RUSTON, La - Louisiana offers students the opportunity to take public school courses online for free.
University View Academy held an open house for parents in Ruston,
The University View Academy is a public school option for the mother of 2, Jessica Spurlock who prefers a flexible, home-based environment for her children.
"My scare was always that my kids would be picked on by other kids or bullied," said Spurlock.
The online school uses certified teachers and follows a curriculum that Superintendent Dr. Lonnie Luce said is designed to offer an education that equals that of other public schools.
The online school meets all-academic requirements for graduation and for potential admission to colleges.
The school has an enrollment of a little more than 2,300 students. More information can be found here: http://www.universityview.academy/
